12/31/2014. 22 oz. bottle. Clear amber color with a white head. Nice lacing. Fresh hop aromas, spices and pine. Carbonation is a bit high, but the hops are right there and all the way. Long bitter finish.

wlajwl (4435) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - DEC 29, 2014
Aroma is pine, fruit and very muted malts. The flavor is grapefruit, fruit, mild hop resin, a background of malts and a dry/slightly bitter finish. A little milder than preferable but cleans up nicely.

Grapefruit nose, subtle lemon zest and onion presence. Crystal clear amber, thick head, good lace. Flavor is green onion, then grass, then lemongrass. Grapefruit overtones. Medium but little maltiness, low bitterness.Mote weight than a session IPA, but definitely hoppy.

Dr_Fellini (772) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - DEC 20, 2014
Bottle to glass. Pours a clear golden orange light amber color with an off white head. Aroma is a nice fleshy fruit, light tropical hops, slightly piney. Flavor loses a bit of the tropical notes, but bigger piney character. Lingering slightly fruity piney bitterness in the finish. A fine offering from Green Flash.

julesjis (256) - Oregon, USA - DEC 5, 2014
Poured from the tap at ABV in Hillsboro. Has a nice IPA aroma to it. Definitely has a sweet start, but the finish is like a 2x4. Definitely packs a punch.
